Sailor King of Pen Ebonite
In 1911, Mr. Kyugoro Sakata, an Engineer from Hiroshima, Japan, was introduced to the fountain pen when his long-time friend, a British sailor, demonstrated one to him. Mr. Sakata was so intrigued by the design and function of the pen he decided to begin a company to craft the finest writing instruments in the world. In honor of his British friend, he chose to name the company Sailor Pen.

He was determined to produce the most elegant and sophisticated writing instruments in the world. His passion was to make writing an alluring adventure, to expand Sailor's market to the world, as a sailor explores the world.

The Sailor Pen Company has proudly maintained this heritage of quality and technical perfection over the years. Still today, it offers the customer a unique variety of writing instruments that enhance the pleasures of the writing experience.
